Following the development, some roads were blocked and traffic disrupted which prevented some people from going about their normal activities.
However, the deputy governor in a tweet via his Twitter account queried the End SARS protesters for blocking the roads, disrupting free traffic and preventing other people from embarking on their lawful duties.
Hamzat also said that the protest was supposed to be orderly to ensure that the salient point of the messages are passed.
Reacting, Akindoju in a tweet via her Twitter account reminded the Deputy Governor that he allegedly blocked the road to celebrate his birthday party.
She further stated that this time, the roads had to be blocked by End SARS protesters in order to save the lives of the innocent.
“But sir, you blocked the road for your birthday party.
“The effect on the whole city was felt.
“Let’s keep the same energy sir, this time around, the roads are blocked because we want to stay alive. Thank you sir,” she said.
